Former state Republican Party executive director Brandon Scholz says Vos is the most logical choice. And as a southerner and the highest ranking African-American in Congress, he could help the party build its strength as Democrats seek to make inroads in traditionally GOP territory in part by increasing turnout among black voters.

House Speaker Paul Ryan 's retirement, which comes after his momentous two-decade run as the representative for Wisconsin's 1st District, may soon leave his big store of campaign cash up for grabs, and many fellow Republicans in Congress will be eager to get their hands on it.

"You realize something when you take this job", Ryan told reporters on Capitol Hill on Wednesday morning.

"I think he's really exhausted". And I have no regrets whatsoever for having accepted this responsibility. He said it's easy for the speaker role "to take over everything in your life and you can just let that happen, but there other things in life that are fleeting as well". "And one thing Ive learned about teenagers is their idea of an ideal weekend is not necessarily to spend all of the time with their parents", he said. "He will serve out his full term, run through the tape, and then retire in January", Ryan counselor Brendan Buck said in a statement that was shared by Roll Call.

Ryan was pulled into the leadership job by the abrupt retirement of House Speaker John Boehner in 2015. Rumours had been swirling in conservative circles for months that he was eying the exits. Ryan was chairman of the House Budget Committee and it was his experience in that area that was cited as the primary reason for his inclusion on the ticket.

Still, Sykes sees this as a warning signal to the Republican party about the 2018 midterm elections and perhaps beyond. My kids werent even born when I was first elected.

Nadal Beats Zverev In Davis Cup Quarter Final
On Saturday, France's Nicolas Mahut and Pierre-Hugues Herbert will face Fognini and Simone Bolelli in the doubles. It was also the 24th consecutive match Nadal has won in the Davis Cup. "It's a great feeling to be back".

After months of speculation about his political future, House Speaker Paul Ryan's office announced he will not be seeking re-election in 2018.

Ryan is the top Republican Party lawmaker in the House. "I have assurances that it's not, because I've been talking to people in the White House about it".

President Donald Trump lauded House Speaker Paul Ryan for his achievements after learning on Wednesday that Ryan won't seek re-election. Ryan, the vice presidential candidate with Mitt Romney in 2012, is, after all, only 48.

In December Mr Ryan achieved his cherished goal of overhauling the U.S. tax code, and according to Axios, regarded it as the capstone of his legislative career.

The leader of Ryan's campaign team, Kevin Seifert, said Ryan has no plans to endorse if there is a Republican primary in the race to replace him, but that he "will work tirelessly so Republicans keep this seat".

Days after denying rumors of his impending retirement, USA speaker of the House Paul Ryan announced on Wednesday that he was not seeking another term in the US congress. As Speaker he found himself sandwiched between the GOP hard right and mainstream Republicans along with the controversial and ever-changing president who has turned to using tariffs to spark a trade war that the Speaker opposes and feels is a violation of the free market.
